Ever since Deepavali, films only with U certificate have been hitting the screens. After Thuppakki, Podaa Podi, Neerparavai and Naduvula Konja Pakkatha Kaanom, two more films that are releasing this Friday, have been certified for universal audience by the Censor Board.

Neethanae En Ponvasantham and Kumki, directed by ace directors — Gautham Vasudev Menon and Vikram Prabhu — respectively, were in production for a long time and traverse on different paths with a similar theme - love.

While Jiiva and Samantha pair in NEP, legendary actor Sivaji Ganesan’s grandson Vikram Prabhu debuts as hero in Kumki. Originally, actor Karthi’s name had been considered to be part of Kumki and Studio Green were in talks to produce the film. However, since  Prabhu wanted to cast a fresh face in the lead, the project went to Lingusamy’s Thirupathi Brothers. Gnanavelraja of Studio Green, which is releasing the film, said, “We are happy that the film has come back to us. We might have regretted if somebody else had done the lead role, but now we are delighted as someone from Sivaji sir’s family is debuting as the hero in the film.” Director Prabhu Solomon said they have worked towards bringing the quality of a global cinema in all aspects of the film.
